Asked by Jun 08, 2016 at 09:00 AM about the 2007 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLT-1 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 GMC Yukon XL that has a very loose Ground cable on the
battery terminal. The terminal is closed as tight as it will go, however it still
moves on the Ground post freely. The computer read out for the vehicle
and the odometer and computer read out, gear selection stop displaying
about 2 months ago.As of today the radio lost all the speakers except for
the 2 in the windshield pillars (Tweeters) and its started with an engine
stutter.

You will need to replace the negative cable or the cable end. Loose battery or ground cables can cause all kinds of strange issues.
